Abstract

An easy one pot method is demonstrated for the controlled periodical surface coating of polyethylene over multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) by insitu polymerization of ethylene using highly active metallocene catalysts (Cp 2ZrCl 2 and Cp 2TiCl 2) in combination withmethylalumoxane. The crystallinity of the nanocomposite was increased and its morphology could be tuned from "sausage" like to "shish-kebab" in the presence of CNTdepending on the experimental condition and choice of metal atom.
